Last month’s blockbuster Uncharted debut has fueled another round of video game nostalgia at Now Playing Podcast, with the hosts returning to the “arcade” for a trio of adaptations released in the 2010s. If you’re a devoted gamer you may be familiar with the zombie-themed Dead Trigger or Capcom’s Ace Attorneyfranchise; and even casual gamers know the immense popularity of Assassin’s Creed.
But, the latter aside, how many are aware of the Dead Trigger film adaptation starring action GOAT Dolph Lundgren or Japan’s 2012 Ace Attorney comedy? Those two, along with 2016’s Michael Fassbender-fronted Assassin’s Creed will get the Now Playing treatment in March.
The video game trio will be reviewed on the main feed after the hosts tackle all-new entries in a pair of long-running, yet very different, retrospectives. The first, 2022’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel, arrives on the main feed more than a week after its Netflix debut – as the hosts first needed to tackle Uncharted – and will be followed a week later with a review of Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
Those aforementioned reviews will arrive every Tuesday, while Fridays are reserved for the Harry Potter Retrospective Series and Now Playing’s 2022 Spring/Summer Donation Drive. Having covered the first three entries in February, hosts Arnie, Brock, and Stuart are set to finish four more Potter sequels – Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, The Half-Blood Prince, and the Part One of the franchise finale, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. At the same time, they’ll continue to review J.K. Rowling’s source material, with new reviews of the Harry Potter novels dropping weekly on Now Playing’s sister podcast, Books & Nachos.
